“Wondering Where The Lions Are”
In an attempt to ramp up my energy level for what’s sure to be a busy and active summer, I’ve gotten back to the gym recently. I’ve been taking some intense classes that are quite challenging and I’ve noticed that the music selection can really play a part in the whole experience.
Today towards the end of a class called “Butt N’ Up” (yup), this song came on. I immediately recognized Bruce Cockburn’s melody and lyrics and wondered who was covering it so beautifully. The teacher informed me it was Donovan Frankenreiter, and after a bit of poking around, I found it on an old EP of covers he put out in 2007 called Recycled Recipes. I thought that was a pretty fitting album title, since he’s taken this tune and really made it his own. I love the slower pace and gentle harmony…it sure made my trembling muscles relax just a bit more today in class. Thanks, Donavon!
